#1) Shave dry. No cream and no water. It’s easier and you cut yourself less this way. #2) Shave with the grain. Mine grows in two directions so I shave part in downward strokes and part in upward strokes. Takes about 5 minutes total. In re: armpits, mine are hairy like a monkey and I shave them about once every 3 months with hair clippers. I have found when I shave them I don’t need deodorant. Does it make a difference? If you’re a bodybuilder, yes. If normal joe no, but mine are so unbelievable hairy I’ll always at least trim them.
As its production and use increased, public response was mixed. At the same time that DDT was hailed as part of the "world of tomorrow," concerns were expressed about its potential to kill harmless and beneficial insects (particularly pollinators ), birds, fish, and eventually humans. The issue of toxicity was complicated, partly because DDT's effects varied from species to species, and partly because consecutive exposures could accumulate, causing damage comparable to large doses. A number of states attempted to regulate DDT.   In the 1950s the federal government began tightening regulations governing its use.  These events received little attention. Women like Dorothy Colson and Mamie Ella Plyler of Claxton, Georgia gathered evidence about DDT's effects and wrote to the Georgia Department of Public Health, the National Health Council in New York City, and other organizations.
